„In The Doors we have both musicians and poets, and both know of each other's art, so we can effect a synthesis.“

Kontext: In The Doors we have both musicians and poets, and both know of each other's art, so we can effect a synthesis. In the case of Tim Buckley or Dylan you have one man's ideas. Most groups today aren't groups. In a true group all the members create the arrangements among themselves.
